The Last Hurrah Project..Photo Heavy

Recommended Posts

Great progress!

 

You must have a whole forest with trees and shrooms by now.

A group picture would be nice to see!

 

Oh, the poor misguided adventurer who enters those woods...

I would need more trees to make a forest, but I do have enough to give the impression.

It is getting there. I am happy you like it thus far. Thanks for the reply, Glitter.

The bark is now sculpted all around:

Once it's dry enough to touch, the roof will get tiled. Then on to the detailing...that's when the fun begins.

AND now with the roofing done, the clay work is complete:

Placing each tile one at a time can be a little tedious, but the results are nice:

SO until next time...

To say this is Incredible would be an understatement.

I will say that it is "as creepy as heck".!!!!

I've never felt a building to resemble a malicious evil bird before.

It looks like a furiously, mad owl looking for something to consume

to my eye's.  Shudder.  Can't wait to see this painted and in place..

Jay pulls blanket back over head, with one eye peaking at the screen.

Gulp !!!!

...well it is supposed to be a tree stump, but whatever. I am glad you like it, Jay. Thanks for yet another enthusiastic response.

I did up 12 of the 20 smaller mushrooms from the Faerie Circle. Tomorrow the detailing starts. AND I will see if I have any minis

I would like to include on the base...or not.

The various pieces are coming together...for the most part.

...the building idea was a pretty normal take on the thing. How often do you see a Tree with a tile/shingled roof, not to mention a front door? The eyes are another matter all together.

I like the Owl Tree idea so much I am going to give it a try. Large unblinking eyes with a wicked, curved beak between & slightly below them & a couple of horn like branches on either

side.

I am, as always, delighted you like the stuff AND took the time to say so. The motivation is GREATLY appreciated. Thank you, Jay!

The first of the Pinterest inspired Mushrooms is done.

Once the Big Guy is based, I doubt I will be able to get a good shot of his face due to the downward slant of the piece:

I have some ideas for the base...this may be a prolonged effort.

 

I love these little guys. You keep coming up with fantastic new inspirations.

That tree house looks magnificently like a Muppet, a malevolent, menacing Muppet.

My friend, Liz, had been sending me inspiring photos she'd found on the web. Then I got a couple of Mushroom reference books...the Audubon Society one is incredible. 

Finding the Pinterest site was a turning point. There are just a staggering array of inspirational photos. Trees, Mushrooms, the Frouds, & Jim Henson...I have to see if

Tim Burton is lurking there as well.

Jim Henson & his work with Brian & Wendy Froud are major sources of ideas for me. If you can see their influence in my work, that is a wonderful compliment. Thank you for your kind replies, Pingo.

You're going to give it an owl beak?

Wow, this gets better and better.
